Developed to be lightweight, fast and reliable, CentOS is an excellent choice for VPS hosting. CentOS is originated from Red Hat Enterprise Linux so it’s secure, robust and strong. CentOS gives you high speed and stable connections without compromising security making it one of the best enterprise-level operating systems for web hosting.
Ubuntu is a popular operating system for VPS web hosting. Based on Debian and composed of mostly free and open-source software, Ubuntu gives you a flexible and stable hosting environment. This operating system is great for online projects that require a customizable stack, high speeds and robust security.
With Fedora, you get a well-designed, customisable and secure platform for VPS hosting. Fedora is open-source software based on and supported by Red Hat. The refreshing user experience from the GNOME user interface and simple operating system make Fedora good for beginners and more advanced users alike.
Debian is ideal for servers due to a combination of stability and high speeds. With Debian you get an operating system that’s flexible and reliable. One advantage of using Debian for your VPS hosting is the long release cycles. This gives more time for testing meaning fewer bugs. Easy upgrades and high levels of security make Debian a dependable choice.
If you’re looking for a remote desktop computer, then Windows VPS gives you excellent performance for a wide range of business needs. Enjoy seamless integration with Microsoft 365 Apps and Microsoft Teams and the ability to scale up your projects. With a Windows server you get a private machine you can connect to anywhere in the world which makes it ideal for your remote workforce.
Choose a control panel
cPanel & WHM is the industry-leading control panel of choice amongst many hosting providers. This feature-rich yet easy to use control panel takes the stress out of running your server. You can automate web hosting tasks and manage your servers and websites with ease.
When ordering your VPS plan simply select the number of cPanel accounts you want to license and our automated provisioning system will install cPanel for you.
DirectAdmin is web hosting control panel software, similar to cPanel. It lets you quickly and easily administer your website and hosting options using a graphical, web-based interface. You can manage an unlimited number of websites and email accounts, automate tasks and share web servers. Select a DirectAdmin licence when you order your VPS plan and we’ll include the installation instructions with your welcome email.

If your site is outgrowing web hosting then the next step up is a virtual private server. A virtual private server (VPS) is a virtual machine that runs its own copy of an operating system with root access. Choose a hostworld VPS powered by KVM. Your resources are fully fenced off from other users so no interference and you can expand your resources as needed for a flexible solution.
Each virtual server is private from the others and it functions the same as a regular dedicated server. Our VPS servers are optimised for performance giving you incredible speeds and security. You'll also be supported by our expert team 24/7. Simply choose your operating system, place your order and start using it today.
Our servers have been optimised with the latest NVMe SSD drives and KVM virtualisation technology,
A Kernal-Based Virtual Machine is open-source virtualisation technology built into Linux. KVM allows you to turn your Linux into a hypervisor so you can run and manage more virtual machines on a computer.
The benefit of using KVM technology is that it gives you dedicated resources via an isolated kernel, control panel and operating system. This puts you in charge of your hosting account with full root server access which means you can modify, inspect or customise your webserver and other installations to suit your requirements. This puts you in charge of your online activities.
Other users on the server will not affect you and vice versa. This makes it a flexible, scalable, secure, fast and affordable solution to run high resource web applications so you can achieve the results you want from your website or project.
